We’re now on to our next segment of HungryMom’s Food diary which is Pizza. That definitely doesn’t mean plain old sauce and cheese. I love serving different types of pizzas for appetizers in both dairy and meat dinners (obviously keeping that non-dairy.) This week I’m starting off with one of our favorites. I like to serve this when during dinner parties or even for Shabbat lunch.
I always buy store bought frozen pizza balls. The way I defrost and proof the dough is as follows. I put a nice amount of olive oil on a plastic plate. I put the frozen dough on the plate with the oil, flip it so both sides get covered in oil, and put a piece of saran wrap lightly on top. I leave it out on my counter for a few hours until I’m ready to use it. I then roll it out lightly and put it on a greased pizza tray. It’s hard to get the exact shape so I gently push the pizza dough all around with my hands to cover the pizza tray.
Now for our pastrami topping.
Half an onion
¼ lb pastrami
¼ lb Mexican turkey
2 tbsp duck sauce
3 tbsp spicy brown mustard
- Sauté half an onion in 1-2 tbsp of oil until translucent. Add in ¼ lb of sliced deli pastrami, and ¼ lb of sliced deli turkey, my favorite is Mexican turkey, and sauté for around 3 minutes.
- Add in 3 tbsp spicy brown mustard and 2 tbsp duck sauce. Lower the flame to a lower heat and cook for around 5 minutes, mixing every few minutes to make sure it doesn’t burn.
- Meanwhile brush BBQ sauce on the pizza dough, and spread the deli mixture on top.
- Bake on 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, until the pizza dough cooks.
- Before serving – slice jalapenos and arrange on pizza, and drizzle spicy mayo.
